T420s remains in sleep mode when I use F4 to put in sleep mode (after fan replacement)

Q: T420s remains in sleep mode when I use F4 to put in sleep mode (after fan replacement)

I just had the fan replaced, and now when I use F4 to put the laptop in sleep mode and then close the lid, it remains in sleep mode when I open the lid. Same thing occurs when I close the lid (no F4) for sleep mode and then open the lid. However, when I select Sleep on the Windows 7 Start Menu and close the lid, the laptop does resume when I open the lid. NOTES:- Before replacing the fan, I used F4 for sleep and resume, because when I close the lid I would sometimes find the fan running the next morning- BIOS is up-to-date- Keyboard and mouse are set to wake PC- Power Options Settings: - Allow hybrid sleep set to OFF and Hibernate set to NEVER (As they always have been) - USB Settings > Disabled USB selective suspend settings (These were enabled) While this isn't a huge problem, I would like to have things working as before, preferably without having to go back to the Lenovo certified shop. Thank you in advance for your help. Jeff

Good Afternoon,

We have had this fault a couple of times on differing units. The Ultrabook appears to be in sleep mode (flashing white power light) and no amount of power button pushing, keyboard clicking or mouse moving brings it out of this state.

Holding down power for 5 seconds does not switch the UltraBook off.

I have to wait till next day when the battery completely drains before starting the unit.

Is there any other way to power the unit off perhaps?

A:Portege Z10t-A remains in Sleep Mode

Actually this time around leaving the unit over the weekend hasn't helped. So I can't get into it at all.

Holding the power button in for 5 or 30 seconds achieves nothing. The Power button certianly gets a response becuase the screen will turn off and on.

I cases like these I would normall remove the battery but on this model its not very accessible.

Anyone know another secret way to force the tablet to power off?

I have a 5 year old emachine with a wireless keyboard. For the past few months anytime I would use the sleep button on the keyboard the computer would sleep like normal but when you move the mouse to wake up the computer, the computer would power on but the monitor would show the RGB message. I would have to turn all power off and back on and everything would be fine. But when I came back to from being gone on the weekend it was already in the awake state with the RGB message on the monitor. Now when I try to power the system off and on it goes back to the same RGB message. Everything has power and all connections are good. Any ideas???

Hi,
I've had this problem intermittently on my laptop for the past 2 years however it has been occuring more often recently.

Basically sometimes when I click the sleep button on Windows 7, the screen fades to black as usual. However the fan keeps running (sounds like when it's on full load) and the power button light stays on endlessly. I always have to force shut it down and restart it.

What can be the issue?
Thanks.

A:Laptop freezes between entering sleep mode to being in sleep mode

Hi joseph10444.

Such a situation may occur when some driver (mostly the PnP device drivers depending on the ACPI configuration) fail to response within a stipulated time period during the power state change.

Let us see some data. Upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
Click on the start button
Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.
Upload the list of all the third party drivers Using NirSoft DriverView :
Download and execute Driverview
View > Hide Microsoft Drivers
Edit > Select all
File > Save Selected Items
In the Save dialog, Set the path to desktop, Put "Driverview" in the name field, and save.
Zip the .txt file and upload it.
Those files will give us a closer look to the issue.

Hi KnightCa,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I'm really sorry to hear that your Lenovo W520 goes into sleep mode even after it has been disabled in Power management.
 
Go to Control panel - - >Power Options - - >Change plan settings (Choose the Power plan that you have selected) - - >Change advanced power settings - - >Adjust the settings under sleep and display as shown below.
 

Also, try doing a windows update and reinstallation of Power manager in your system.
 
If the above said didn?t help, try doing a registry editing.
 
1. Open the Start Menu. 2. In the white line (Start Search) area, type regedit and press Enter. 3. If prompted, click on Continue in the prompt. 4. In regedit, go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\238C9FA8-0AAD-41ED-83F4-97BE242C8F20\7bc4a2f9-d8fc-4469-b07b-33eb785aaca0\DefaultPowerSchemeValues.
 
5. Expand DefaultPowerSchemeValues and Click on the key that is for the Power Plan that you want to change the wait time (Refer the table below)
 
Spoiler (Highlight to read)
6. In the right pane, right click on ACSettingIndex (while on AC power) or DCSettingIndex (while on battery power) and click on Modify.

When I leave my computer after a session, it automatically goes into sleep mode after a period of time and remains that way till I wake it up.

However when I manually put it to sleep ( via shutdown options) , it goes to sleep immediately but for only a while ( a few minutes) then it shows the desktop screen again. If I then leave it alone after it self awake , it goes back to sleep as described above.

Any idea why ?

Thanks

A:Auto sleep mode works but manual sleep does not

Hi,

Some softwares can stop the sleep request to work properly.

run cmd.exe as a admin (Click on start, type CMD, right click on CMD.exe and select run as admin)
then type the command
powercfg.exe /energy
This will generate a report that will show if any software is blocking the sleep request. Your next step would be to configure the software in control panel power options

I like to put my computer on sleep so I can just come back to where I left it, but the past few days when I put it on sleep the screen would just go black like it was asleep, but the computer was still on and running like I didn't put it in sleep. Then when I move the mouse to come out of sleep it says "locking computer" and goes to my password screen (which is what it should do before going to sleep). I don't think its in the power settings because I've checked there and played around with the settings (I'm not technically challenged so I don't think it's something that simple lol).

Also, my touchpad scroll feature does not work (and has not worked for quite some time). It comes back when I turn the computer off and on again, but I only do that a few times a week. I've tried reinstalling the touchpad firmware so that isn't the problem.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215.

I've been using this Windows 7 Home system for some years. At first it used the CRT monitor I had for much longer than this system, then a used LCD monitor, now for the last six or eight months a larger used, but seemingly in excellent condition, Dell E228WFP.

My habit has been, for much longer than I've had the Win7 system, to manually put the system in sleep mode during the day when I expect to be away for any extended time. I turn it off if I will definitely be away for hours and turn it off over night.

The problem did not exist until this Dell monitor. I don't recall how soon after getting the monitor it started, probably not very long.

The system always come up working properly when first turned on but sometimes, when I awaken the system, the video is at a much lower resolution. Looking at the Windows Screen resolution, it says generic PNP monitor rather than the Dell. This is an annoyance but easy enough to fix, just click on Detect, and it switches back to the Dell at the higher resolution, the recommended 1680 X 1050, which is enough to suit me.

Starting perhaps six or eight weeks ago it sometimes instead woke up with a message

Cannot display this video mode
optimum resolution 1680 x 1050 60Hz

2: Analog Input

The only way to get any video is to restart the system, which always came up correct from boot or reboot, just not from reawaken. If nothing was open when I put it to sleep, I can use the k... Read more

Hello Jack,

You might check using STEP SIX in the tutorial below as a guide to see if you have a "Power Management" tab to uncheck the "Allow to wake computer" option in it for you mouse in Device Manager.

Power Options and Sleep Mode Problems

If not, then you can use the STEP FIVE section to manually disable the mouse from waking up your computer.

Just be sure that you at least have the keyboard allowed to wake up the computer, or you will have to press the case power button to wake up your computer instead.

Hope this helps,

Yes. The flashing power light is a good indication that the computer is indeed sleeping.

Ask someone that is in the office to wake it up - then you can connect and set it to never sleep. Let us know if you need help changing those settings.

It has been a while since I have used LogMeIn. I do not recall if those at your office can see what you see on the computer screen while you work from home. Hopefully, there is an option that lets coworkers only see a locked screen.

I have a compaq presario, CQ56 115DX Notebook, by HP.
Problem started last week and resurfaced again this monday.
could not get my notebook out sleep mode, the caps lock was blinking once, indicating a cpu problem.
took it in to a tech, who changed the cpu. System was running until 2 days, ago, when again, could not get it out of
sleep. Press the power button, turns the laptop off completely, press again, back to sleep, with caps lock blinking once, indicating cpu issues. Took it back to tech, who now thinks it could be the motherboard.
Washed the motherboard, still will not boot up. So how can I boot it up, whats the problem?

Hi all, may be a daft question! but if you use sleep mode (I've never used it before) on a desktop PC, does the power needed to keep things ticking over in the background come from the mains power or the battery on the mobo?

The longest I'm away from the PC is about 17 hours, so is it worth using sleep mode rather than shutting it fully down?

Thanks

A:Sleep mode?

Hello Avo,

It will use a small amount of the main power while in sleep mode to keep the memory (RAM) intact.

The motherboard battery is only used to maintain the BIOS and time settings of the motherboard while the computer is not plugged in to the outlet, or when the PSU has been turned off.

Sleep mode is helpful by having your computer startup right where you left off since your last session, and is handy if you are off and on the computer often.

You could use both sleep or shutdown if you like. Use sleep when you will be off and on, and use shutdown when it will be a while before the next session to save some energy.

It's really up to you and how often you use the computer though.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

My sleep mode used to work without any problem.

When I now activate sleep the PC shuts down for a while and then wakes up after a short time without any action from me.

Any ideas please ???
